The print shows Brunel's 'suspended traveller'. This was a basket car which hung from an iron bar and was designed to help workmen cross the gorge during construction. On 27th September 1836, Brunel made the first successful crossing. Members of the public paid a fee to travel across. The suspended traveller was in place from 1836 to 1853.
